On Saturday morning we headed out to dive Takatu Point, followed by another dive in the nearby Tawharanui Marine Reserve. Both dive sites are excellent, but everyone agreed that the amount of marine life found in the marine reserve was dramatically more than the unprotected Takatu Point. It is a great example of how successful the Marine Reserves are in protecting our marine environment…long live the marine reserves and there should be more of them !!
In the afternoon we headed back out to dive the Outpost…one of our favorite local dive sites. There is always a wealth of small macro subjects, but also the chance to sea larger creatures such as stingrays and schools of kingfish. Joy, Peter, Phillip and Sadeer have recently completed their Open Water Course with us and decided to continue their first plunge as qualified divers together as a group.
